Pentax Optio SVi review
the day after purchasing it the "Sliding lens sistem" broke down. THIS IS UNFORGIVABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Pentax has replaced my camera with a new one.
Maybe the previous camera was an unluky specimen.
NOW EVERYTHING IS OK AND THE CAMERA WORKS VERY WELL.
*5X optical zoom in a very small body, only 6 oz. in working condition.
*a lot of manual setting, this may help in bad light situations. (This is a compact camera, mind it)
*I still have not understood how to switch off the lcd. Maybe i have used the camera too short.
*Lcd a little bit small, but it has the optical viewfinder, not all the cameras in this class do.
*focusing is slow, this is the only real drawback.

The problem has been solved replacing the camera.
